The island of Hopping vs the sleeper of walking.

PICK THE ONE YOU LIKE LEAST.

I've been trying to listen to EW a lot during this tourney - it's not even as good as I remember, maybe my old vinyl press has some life to it that the CD version lacks - but Sleepwalk just isn't up to snuff. That whole second side was really dire. This is a matchup that suffers from the quirk of the tournament formatting - there are at least 2-3 other songs on side one that clobber anything on side two. Anyways, I still think Island Hopping is an all-time Top 5 Joe solo song, so I have no qualms voting for Sleepwalk here.

I'm voting against Island Hopping because Marky's remix of Sleepwalk was so great. A new classic Joe song.

Absolutely. One of Joe's best lyrics.
